If you’re looking for some new places to add to your roster, for your consideration:
TARTINE MANUFACTORY has their dinner service under way, served Wed-Sun 5:30pm-10pm. Take a look at the menu here. Obviously the bread service should be at the top of your list, and at a test dinner, the tartare and salt-baked petrale sole were notable. And then there’s that porchetta too. Vinny Eng is rocking the wine list, with some fantastic food-friendly selections.
Over on Nob Hill, the new chef at ~MASON PACIFIC~, Max Mackinnon, has launched weekend brunch (Sat-Sun 10am-2pm). Dishes on the menu range from a sourdough waffle with maple and bacon to a classic omelet with Comté and green salad. Or you can go full tilt on a New York strip steak and eggs with potato and hollandaise.
